The frontmost ram does appear to be a female, and I am fairly sure the other is a male. It may help if you are able to get a better picture of the one in the background.

I think you got two females there. They look good though...put a male in with them if you can, to bring out their coloration better.



Here's my pair, for reference. Not a great shot of the female, but you can see her colors aren't as intense.

I agree the front one does appear to be male need a better view of the second to determine. See the pinkish belly on Fishbowlings pair that is a sure sign of a female. While not a great shot you can still see the rosey belly.

Okay, had to lure her out with food to get a better shot. She is not nearly as phone camera-friendly as her mate; I felt like I was one of those camera guys on the "Planet Earth" crew camped out for days to get 15 seconds of video.
